Comparative Analysis of Socio-Economic Impact in ATTRACT - CASEIA

Abstract

How has the ATTRACT phase-1 paradigm and support mechanism achieved broad-spectrum socio-economic impact at the project level, in comparison to similar projects that have not received ATTRACT support? The ATTRACT paradigm signals a new approach towards harnessing the power of basic science for broader and more impactful socio-economic development. Our research will undertake a comparative analysis to better understand how the support offered through ATTRACT phase 1 has led to impacts such as strengthened innovation ecosystems, commercial applications of innovation, skills development, and broader social goods.
